Sanatorium Kechnec

Sanatorium Kechnec

Considering advanced development of the operating requirements of the given type of the construction from the time of creation of both objects the design deals with the change of concept of initially proposed solutions. The main entrance via newly established entrance foyer will be situated in the north part between the existing object directly from the local communication. The wing with the surgeries will be accessible from the foyer with the reception, the outpatient department (SO01) will be left on the original place, only the roof and circumferential lining will be reconstructed. The centre of the first aboveground floor will consist of diagnostic part accessible from foyer and from the part of emergency unit. This part will contain such units as magnetic resonance imaging, CT, X-ray, mammography and central ultrasound.  In the west part of the land has been designed a new wing accessible from the foyer via new bridging with the winter garden for the visitors of the seniors and wet and dry rehabilitation.  In the south part there is emergency unit, production of medications, intensive care unit and surgery tract with two operating theatres. Inpatient hospital care is located on the second floor. SO-02 of the main sanatorium building. Here is located administration and management of sanatorium. Third to fifth floor will comprise senior house providing complete medical care.  Technical security of the sanatorium is designed to be located in the basement together with the laundry, kitchen and employee changing rooms. Accessibility of the basement is implemented through exterior passable communications.  From the operational point of view the design deals with mutual interconnection of functional units by way of separate communication pathways, the so called internal – emergency unit, diagnostic, surgery tract, production of medication, inpatient care, and the so called external for the public – foyer, surgeries, pharmacy, gastro, diagnostic, rehabilitation. Design takes into account the requirement of barrier-free access. For this purpose new lifts, communications – ramps, sanitary facilities, adjustments of the existing premises and constructions have been designed.
